Callum Easton

PhD Candidate, and Teaching Fellow in British Economic History, Faculty of Economics

I am presently studying for a PhD on the subject of the Royal Navy mutinies at Spithead and the Nore in 1797.

This project is an AHRC funded Collaborative Doctoral Partnership between the University of Cambridge, the National Maritime Museum, and the National Archives. My supervisors are Dr Renaud Morieux (Cambridge), Dr Quintin Colville (NMM), and Bruno Pappalardo (TNA).

I have lectured for Part I Paper 10 (British Economic and Social History 1700-1880) on the standard of living during the Industrial Revolution; and on crime, punishment, and popular protest in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. I have taught a primary sources class for Part I Paper 5 on riots and protests in eighteenth century Britain. I supervise for Economics Part I Paper 5 (Economic History). I have also supervised for History Prelim and Part II, Paper 1 (HAP).
